Meet your Committee of 2022/23


Paulina Gordina


Let’s have a blast of year with social events, careers talks, tours, reading Pipeline, going to Frank Morton, and more in-person activity!

I will be working hard this year making sure the society functions and grows, and that our lovely committee are doing alright and are supported in their endeavours. You can also catch me brewing beer as part of the Beer Club we have recently re-started in ChemEngSoc :) About me: I am going into my 4th year, I like hands-on activities (picture is me with ravioli I made) and watching the F1. And it is very likely you will catch me working in the RODH study rooms! I am very friendly, so if you want to stop by and chat, maybe talk through a cool idea you have for the Soc, please feel free to do so!

Hello everyone, I'm Colleen and I'm the editor in chief of Pipeline, ChemEngSoc's termly magazine :) I've curated all the Pipeline issues to have a balance of seriousness and fun so do check it out if you want to know more about certain academics in the department, get some soul food, and some real food too (I know some weekday lunch deals & great restaurants in London, tested and proven of course)! About me: I learnt how to cook during my Covid self-isolation and have since enjoyed hosting people for picnics, meals and board games nights! I also enjoy watching comedy TV shows and movies just to take my mind off the serious academic work (escapism much).
